Hi, I recently updated to version 22.0 . Now when ever I open a new website it starts zoomed in further than it was in previous versions, causing the text/icons/images to become unfocused, how do I restore the zoom level or set a blanket zoom for all pages/sites? Also, all the icons and boxes/tool bars are 'out of focus' but not the text on them, I have a 1920x1080 but have not encountered this problem with any other program or version of Firefox thus far. How do I stop them appearing unfocused? I hope this was clear, thanks for the help

I am not online every day, or even every week. I seems to me that my Firefox is updating fairly frequently. Is this normal? Does my Firefox need to be updated more than once or twice a year? I admit I have not kept a record of the number of times or the dates it has had to be updated. It just seems like it is fairly frequent, and I have not noticed any differences. This is not a problem, it is just a question.

Hello, recently I have noticed that when I type in my address bar, I get results that I have not seen before. When i type in "facebook", the facebook page comes up in my address bar, but also in bold black I see a mangifying glass like its a recent search i did, and it just says facebook. When I click on it it gives me a bing search for facebook. How do i remove these bing search suggestions from my address bar? Depending on what im trying to navigate to, i get anywhere from 3-10 searches and I can't see any of my history to navigate.

The button 'Restart to update' shows and does a restart but there is no update. I have checked under 'OPTIONS': in the 'Advanced' section, on the Update tab, 'Automatically install' is selected. 'Warn me if this will disable add-ons' & 'Use a background service to install updates' are both checked. I can download and install the latest version of Firefox but how can I automatically keep it up to date?

I used to be able to "restore" all my Firefox open browsers (about 30) and tabs (about 20 in each browser), but now the browsers are gone. Help?

Hello,

I like Mozilla Firefox, and have used the browser for years.

I like to have a different Firefox browser for each major subject (for example, each upcoming trip). I have about 30 different Firefox browsers open at once in my computer memory. Each of these 30 browsers has about 20 different tabs open in my computer memory. So in total, I have about 30 x 20 = 600 different tabs (websites) open at any one time. I refer to these often. Since I have spent the time to search and find these websites, I want to read them very easily in the future. I also have about 100 bookmarks, but bookmarks are not as organized as browsers and tabs. At night, I put my computer to sleep. In the morning, I turn on the computer, and all the browsers and tabs are there. If I had to restart my computer, (for example after installing Windows updates), then Firefox used to ask if I want to restore the previous session, which I did, and I got all 30 browsers x 20 tabs = 600 tabs back no problem.

But recently, I cannot restore all of those browsers; they are gone. How can I restore all the browsers I had open previously? I see the tabs under "History", but they are not organized within all the browsers that I had open. I reset Firefox to the factory default, but that has not helped.

Thanks, Craig Seattle, Washington, USA

How can I set print margins in Firefox 17 on Linux? There are no margin setings in Page Setup, or in the print dialog. In about:config, there are sets of settings called e.g. printer_Print_to_File.print_margin_top etc. as well as print.printer_Print_to_File.print_margin_top etc., but when I try to set these it seems they reset to 0.5 when I print something, and the printed margins are always the same. In previous versions of Firefox I have managed to set the margins using about:config, but that changed in a recent version.
